Taylor Pass Hut
Taylor Pass Hut is just 15 minutes from Blenheim, on a property called 'Jentree', in a valley called Taylor Pass. Taylor Pass is one of the last valleys of traditional rugged farming country in Marlborough.
The hut is the perfect romantic couples retreat, set along an avenue of pretty trees, on the banks of the Taylor River.
A stunning example of small space glamping done well, everything in the hut fits neatly into a cosy, functional and beautifully styled space. Each window perfectly frames a view of the surrounding countryside. A door in the main living area leads to a separate bathroom, complete with hot shower and toilet.
Positioned to take in the setting sun at the end of the valley, the outlook is beautiful. Just below, water gently trickles across a rocky river bed. An abundance of fantails will keep you company during the day, with the occasional Tui and Bellbird popping in to visit too. Clear skies, make for unbelievable star-gazing - perfect for outdoor bathing at night.
Whether you're travelling around the South Island, visiting Blenheim for the weekend, or on honeymoon, Taylor Pass Hut is the perfect place to switch off and relax. There's no cell phone service at the hut, and apart from the very occasional car on the road, it's completely tranquil.
When you're not completely blissed out in the comfort of your romantic little hut, the proximity to Blenheim means you can explore all the Marlborough region has to offer. Adventurers can bring their mountain bikes or walking boots and tackle the local tracks, foodies can hit the local cafes, restaurants and bars - and wine lovers can enjoy the many world-class wineries on offer. There's something for everyone!
